Surfing in cold Waters
When surfing in cold waters, we are aware that all surfers are looking for a wetsuits that will keep them warm throughout the session.
At deeply, our focus is on achieving the perfect balance between warmth and flexibility.
We believe this is where ultimate comfort lies.. It was during this tireless research and development that the use of graphene came about.
Graphene is a Nobel prize winning material that was rediscovered and isolated by scientists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov in 2004, after being first discovered in 1962.
This material continues to revolutionize a wide spectrum of products, from increased battery capacity to more responsive tennis rackets, sunglasses, and even clothing.
But what exactly is graphene?
Graphene is an allotrope of carbon consisting of a single layer of atoms arranged in a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice nanostructure... ok, let’s put this into other words! Graphene wrapped yarns enables the maintenance of warmth for longer, when compared with normal lining made from hollow fibers. It also reproduces heat through body movement.
This provides sustainable comfortable for long and cold surf sessions. Its drying properties are excellent, ensuring that the suit dries quickly so that it can be used several times throughout the day. The overall comfort of the suit is very much related to the way it is built, using the right combination of materials, which is why our graphene suits also use our latest neoprene composition, Mineralprene.
Mineralprene is manufactured using neglected oyster shells. The oyster shells are recycled and converted into oxide powder. This enables us to reduce the amount of limestone used in our wetsuit composition. As a result, we yield a more natural and comfortable foam rubber.
